Mother’s Chocolate Strudel only has 4 ingredients and it comes together in about 15 minutes. She will love it and needless to say, everyone else will too.
Yes! Mother made Chocolate Strudel and she deserves to eat chocolate strudel. And she deserves it made by me. I bet you feel the same way.
It’s not hard to treat your mother well. Think of all the meals that you have been fed over the years from ‘mom’.
It boggles my mind how time-consuming meals are. Multiple that by the number of people in the family and balance it with everyone’s likes and dislikes then you are really facing a chore. If only I could repay her.
Besides the pleasant tasks of being warm, thoughtful and loving to your mom you can also extend your happiness by making her a wonderful easy chocolate dessert.
Mother’s Chocolate Strudel can be served any time but on a special day such as her birthday or Mother’s Day would be super nice.
I want to tackle my own homemade puff pastry someday but for now, this is mighty delicious.
Try to roll a little bit snug as the pastry does puff up and it may rise way above your inside ingredients. That is still okay but it looks really good when everything is all snug and ooey and gooey.
I’m trying to think of any hints to make this recipe run very smoothly for you but it is so easy and foolproof that I can’t think of anything.
Try Mother’s Chocolate Strudel soon for your special lady and, believe me, she will love it and needless to say, everyone else will too.
What Are Some Tools to Help Make Mother’s Chocolate Strudel
I like a 10″ knife blade for chopping nuts. They seem to move all over the cutting board and you can just rock back and forth all over the board to catch the nuts.
Speaking of cutting boards. A nice large bamboo one is perfect.
Another bamboo product that works great is a tapered rolling pin. You should have one of these on hand.
Stainless Steel baking pans are the way to go. Heftier and easier to clean.
